Back in 1999 my wife and I honeymooned in Breckenridge. As we approached our 10th anniversary we decided we wanted to return and I began to research places to stay. We ultimately decided on the Mountain Thunder Lodge and we were not disappointed in the least.
Since this was not only going to be a 2nd honeymoon but also a week without the kids, we were hoping for a place where we could relax, read, use as a home base for re-exploring the area and have quiet time together. MTL scored well in all of the above. Please note that we were staying in Breck in early June and therefore after ski season.
The room was very comfortable and clean. Our first night, however, we had a room which faced the road and with the windows open at night (the room was very hot and I don't know why) there was a lot of traffic noise, especially in the morning. Since we arrived on a Sunday there were few people there. I went to the front desk to request a room on the other side of the building and the woman immediately gave us a unit across the hall. This was indicative of the service all week long . . . helpful, immediate and easy going. The new room faced the pool and was much quieter (and unlike the 1st room it had HDTV. Score!)
The kitchen is well appointed with everything you could need. We didn't cook, but it was nice to have a fridge for leftovers and snacks, a full size coffeepot for the morning and all the utensils and dishes necessary. In addition to the kitchen some features of the unit we liked best were the large bathroom, the HDTVs, the balcony (did a lot of reading out there) and the gas fireplace which was used nightly due to the cool evenings.
With the exception of the traffic on the road side of the property the location is great. It's away from the bustle of main street but close enough that you can walk anywhere. We rarely used the car all week long and kept it parked in the underground garage which I can see would be very helpful during ski season.
My wife raved about MTL and has been telling everyone that we stayed at such a great place (which is particularly gratifying for me since I did the research and chose it!) The next time we head to Breck it will be with our children too and the Mountain Thunder Lodge will no doubt be our lodging. It is great for couples and families and we can't wait to return!
